on the toughest gun laws in the nation, but in congress senate sxwrort leader harry reid pours cold water on an assault weapons ban unless the house acts first. >> let's be realistic. in the senate we're going to do what we think will get through the house, and i don't think going through these eyeragses to say we've done something. >> mother of ben wheeler tells rachel maddow that action on guns should trump politics. >> it's not just republican, democrat -- >> no, no. >> independent. that is the thing that is just blowing my mind that i feel like it's really not about your party. >> it's not. it's not. >> i really feel like it's about our children. >>> coming clean. disgraced pro cyclist lance armstrong confesses to oprah winfrey he used performance enhancing drugs to win the tour de france. >> we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. >> could he face criminal charges? >>> critical vote. chuck schumer says he will back chuck hagel as defense secretary. secretary of state hillary clinton with a long-time ally, liberia's president ellen johnson surleaf. >> it's important to
moving forward with gun control measures but at the federal level it seems like a tough sell. harry reid doubts such a measure to ban assault weapons would get through the house. what does that mean for national gun control laws? are we at a stalemate? >> i don't believe we are. it comes down to what are we going to be able to get bipartisan support for in the congress? and there are three things that i believe are possible to get across the aisle support. my major focus has been since january 8th on mental health services and awareness and i'll be dropping a bill today that will move in that direction called the mental health first aid act so that's one thing that i believe is possible. there seems to be some cross unanimity across the aisle on mental health services and my bill will hopefully be one of the first steps in that direction. >> you met with vice president biden as part of a task force convened by the president. the vice president was supposed to deliver his recommendations today to the president, but he delayed that. why the holdup? >> i'm not sure i could tell you why the
that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass the house. you see the president wants you to keep trying, harry. the american people do too. while you're at it, maybe congress could follow new york state's lead. because today governor andrew cuomo signed into law the toughest package of gun measures in the nation. the new law expands the state's assault weapons ban. requires background checks to buy ammunition. increase penalties for multiple gun crimes. creates a statewide gun registration database and requires mental health professionals to report patients they believe are likely to harm themselves or others. nowhere in the list do you hear about feds coming to your house to take away your form of entertainment. but as new york congressman steve israel said today more federal and state actions are needed too. >> if those weapons can permeate new york's borders, it makes it tougher. >> john: for more, i'm now joined by a key figure in the guns debate, virginia democratic congressman bobby scott is the ranking member of the crime terrorism and homeland security subcommitte
the lawmakers and harry reid of nevada made sure it got in to have a provision in there saying patients don't have to answer if they are asked by their doctor whether they have a eun. protected thanks to the nra. why is the nra guy so surprised that they may be asking? >> bill: answer me this megyn. >> okay. >> bill: the president makes a point in his presentation about guns to mention mental health people all right? he is going to direct them. is he going to give them authority in this area. >> that they may. >> bill: that they may. >> clarifying his law doesn't prohibit. clarifying that indeed they may. >> bill: that's a little bit of spin. >> they have been doing it, bill. they have been doing it. if you are a physician and somebody comes into your office with six gunshot wounds you have a right to ask about the gun. i saw the president and he is not a guy ha ad-libs a lot. this is on the tell prompter specifically point out that he is giving the authority to school officials,mental health officials. to get into this area. and i think that just raises red flag going all right. now what?
proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back to you, no, over to you. neither one of them -- and this is what makes the nra's bizarre decision that they did today, the risk -- right now, harry re reid's the best friend they've got, and if they figure out a way to alienate senate democrats who have carried their water before with the stunt they pulled today with this bizarre web ad, they are going to live to regret it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either side wanted to engage in during the presidential campaign. we just went through a two-year campaign, where e
something rather strong about harry reid. we assume that kind of language was not used in the white house this morning, but can they really get along and do what needs to get done? >> there is -- there are pockets of enmity that are quite well-known. what's really wonderful about washington, and this day is going to be full of this, is that you can have members, particularly on the senate floor, that can just bash each other. john has had a bird's-eye view of this. during the day with key issues of state at risk, and at the end of the day they can go off to the moncle and have a drink or a steak and so -- >> although a lot less than used to take place. >> that's true. >> jill biden, the vice president's wife, the second lady of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some circumstantial evidence. look at the fiscal cliff vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you'
harry reid, the head of the democratic party in the senate, is nervous about submitting it to the congress because he figures it won't pass the house. >> two points. one, i think the poll -- and the irony here is a lot of the stuff you just showed the nra was behind. they didn't have a problem with -- >> that's right. >> -- the gun show checks -- >> in the days of yesteryear. >> in the days of yesteryear and i think they need to get back to that. >> you know the politics. why this they gone to this rejecti rejectionist? >> i'll be the washington cynic and the fact is it's fund raising and membership. and you look -- >> is it gun sales? >> absolutely gun sales, am mission, from ammunition to guns. take that off the table. you still have the slaughter of 20 innocents here. that's what is driving the american people. that's the focus of our community right now is if this can happen in newtown, massachusetts, it's certainly happens in chicago -- >> respond to what the governor said about the suburban governors who aren't right wingers. if you were still party chair, what lan

say, including harry reid, suggesting that an assault weapons ban wouldn't get through the house. you just heard a member of the house saying he believes the president should take any action. what's your reaction? >> absolutely. people like larry pratt and the nra also oppose things like making sure someone on the terrorist watch list can't get a gun. they don't believe in any restrictions whatsoever. look, nothing in the second amendment says that you have the right to bear arms cheaply and without any convenience. the government has the right to regulate in any way to the limits of the law. they absolutely can do that and they have a compelling interest in doing that. there are things the executive could do without congress and the president should do them all. we haven't had an atf, head of the atf for six years. they should vigorously go after gun trafficking. a lot of weapons are bought in the secondary market. >> 40% of gun sales have no background check whatsoever. >> exactly. >> 40%. >> exactly. all you would have to do to close that up would be to say, okay, fine, if you sell
